She calls herself Eglantine

    …and so it is decided
I shall henceforth be
        a flower
   in a rosy tutu
with a petalled extravaganza
         on my head in lieu
     of hat
and stringy green shafts
      for legs –
      with two shapely beans
defining the calf –
    O I’ll sing and I’ll laugh…I’ll
be all perfumed sweetness
               …at least for awhile.
